In the world of politics, the same thing is true. The political leaders who endeavored to work out something of good for their fellow men found mar tyr's graves in defense of what they believed to be the truth. The Gracchi yielded up their lives for the good of the people, to be apotheosized after centuries had rolled away, as friends of the people and martyrs to the cause of truth. Plato's political economy, as well as that of Sir Thomas Moore, was laughed to scorn in their day, but these have received a new impetus at the hands of modern writers, and they are now applauded as having been seers of that better day that is in store for our humanity every where. Brutus, the noblest Roman of them all, wished people to be free, yet, owing to the inability of the people around him to appreciate his thought, he was called a rebel, and fell at last a martyr to liberty.
